On Leaving the SJW Cult and Finding Myself
by Keri Smith
“I see increasing numbers of so-called liberals cheering censorship and defending violence as a response to speech. I see seemingly reasonable people wishing death on others and laughing at escalating suicide and addiction rates of the white working class. I see liberal think pieces written in opposition to expressing empathy or civility in interactions with those with whom we disagree. I see 63 million Trump voters written off as “nazis” who are okay to target with physical violence. I see concepts like equality and justice being used as a mask for resentful, murderous rage.
The most pernicious aspect of this evolution of the left, is how it seems to be changing people, and how rapidly since the election. I have been dwelling on this Nietzsche quote for almost six months now, “He who fights with monsters, should be careful lest he thereby become a monster. And if thou gaze long into an abyss, the abyss will also gaze into thee.” How easy is it for ordinary humans to commit atrocious acts? History teaches us it’s pretty damn easy when you are blinded to your own hypocrisy. When you believe you are morally superior, when you have dehumanized those you disagree with, you can justify almost anything. In a particularly vocal part of the left, justification for dehumanizing and committing violence against those on the right has already begun.
I don’t yet know what to call this part of the left. Maajid Nawaz calls them the “Regressive Left.” Others call them SJWs (Social Justice Warriors) or the Alt-Left. The ideology is post-modernist cultural marxism, and it operates as a secular religion. Most are indoctrinated in liberal elite colleges, though many are being indoctrinated online these days. It has its own dogma and jargon, meant to make you feel like a good person, and used to lecture others on their ‘sin.’ “Check your privilege”- much like “mansplaining” and “gaslighting”- all at one time useful terms- have over time lost a lot of their meaning. These days I see them most frequently being abused as weaponized ad hominem attacks on a person’s immutable identity markers….a way to avoid making an argument, while simultaneously claiming an unearned moral highground in a discussion.”
Having grown up in a Christian environment, I have a unique perspective on all this.
The Lefties might be shocked to know that they are EXACTLY LIKE the religious-Right whom they despise.
Instead of becoming pious, intolerant, authoritarian, small-minded, right-wing, religious zealots… you went to college and learned how to be pious, intolerant, authoritarian, small-minded, left-wing, secular zealots who mask your hate and bigotry in faux talk of tolerance and “diversity”.
I see little difference between those who defend the crimes of Obama and the crimes of Bush.
I suggest you go undercover, attend a few churches, get involved in their lifestyle for a while and you will see exactly what I mean. Just like any cult… you are either in or you’re out. And if you are out, you are EVIL and DAMMED in the eyes of the people you once thought were your friends.
It might be the thing that finally breaks you of the Liberal mental illness you’ve got, the one foisted upon you by your un-happy, un-loved, un-cool Commie professors. People who could not survive in the real world, so they seek to destroy it with their Marxist lies.
The Left and The Right… two sides of the same control freak coin.
If you’ve signed your names up to join any of these anti-American cults, just know you’ve placed a target on your back that you will live to regret. You better stop and think before you wind up in prison (where so many of your pals who rioted in DC during the Inauguration are going), or dead… cuz one of these times, you’re going to push a Trump supporter with a concealed carry permit and that will be the story of you.
Make my words… both The Communists and the Nazis (the exact same collectivist idiocy) are going to be eradicated from this country.
